Systemax Inc. on Sept. 9 announced that Global Industrial, its value-added industrial products distribution company, had opened its new distribution center in DeSoto, Texas. Located in the Dallas metro area, the distribution center will allow Global Industrial to significantly increase service levels to customers in the Southwest U.S. and provide additional capacity to support its continued growth, the company says.

“We have generated strong organic growth that has generally outpaced most of our peers in the industry for several years and the additional capacity this distribution center provides will allow us to efficiently support our continued expansion, drive long-term operating leverage and enhance customer satisfaction,” says Barry Litwin, Systemax CEO.

Ritesh Chaturbedi, chief operations officer of Systemax, adds, “This new facility is a key component of our differentiated customer experience strategy. It strengthens our national distribution network, allowing us to move closer to customers and significantly increases service levels by improving same day shipping and next day delivery to the Southwest U.S.”

Global Industrial has seven distribution centers serving customers across the U.S. and Canada. Encompass approximately 2.5 million square feet of distribution space, the centers are located in Buford, Georgia, Robbinsville, New Jersey, Las Vegas, Dallas, Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, and in Calgary and Toronto, Canada. The Dallas distribution center is one of Systemax’s largest, at almost 500,000 square feet, and most advanced with improved order flow and output capabilities, according to the company.
